Sacred Partnership with the World

Living with Totem

WHEN:

Coming in 2022

WHERE:

Blue Deer Center

TUITION:

$990 plus food and lodging

Develop a deep spiritual partnership by working with a teacher and spending time in nature to discover, identify and cultivate your personal animal totem.

What if the natural world knew you perfectly well? What if it longed for your particular gifts even before you were born? What if it had arranged to give you what you need to bring forth those gifts?


What if the animals were in on this? What if they were wise and aware? What if some of them were interested in helping you? Could Snake be waiting to make your movements more fluid? Might Owl want to help you see what is dark and hidden? Maybe Jaguar can make you fierce when you need to be.


Program 

In this class you will identify and cultivate your animal totems and form partnerships to last the rest of your life, discovering along the way a deeply enriching source of well-being. Totem Class is a residential program that gives you the time to fully unplug for 3 full days and 4 nights in nature. 


Experiences during this retreat:

  • 1 on 1 counsel with the teacher

  • Learn to form partnerships to last you a lifetime

  • Explore a source of health, relationship, work and self-knowledge

  • Support by staff

  • Teaching Fire


Treat yourself to this time to learn, remember and restore this important relationship with your totem!
